Took a little stroll out to the garage today. I ran the Jeep pretty good yesterday. Went to pick up tiny's son from school in it and drove it around town and what not... Anyway, so I go out to the garage and something under the Jeep catches my eye. Bear in mind this Jeep NEVER leaked a drop of oil before. I'm guessing the PO dumped some kind of stop leak in the damn thing...
I just recently changed over to synthetic. I guess once it warmed up and the oil worked through the system, the leak stop was gone and the freakin' thing started bleeding oil. Know, I don't know which rear main to buy. The engine is out of newer XJ. But one thing is for sure, I'm gonna go ahead and put a clutch in it while its down. Oh Joy! I was kinda hoping it was a 2 piece seal, but I'm not that lucky.
So, transfer, trans and all are gonna get dropped... All this and I have to drop the tank and replace the seals and fuel pump and all.
I'm gonna talk to the DMV and see if I can get the registration changed to read 2008. Cuz when all is said and done this freakin' thing is gonna be brand new.
